When iris eyes are smiling.....


When iris eyes are smiling,


sure 'tis like a morn in spring...


I know, I know...

it's Irish not iris


but it is almost St Patrick’s Day



and this bouquet of iris are gracing

my kitchen counter this week...


So smile,

and sing along….




it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

Those colors are just lovely, Cathy! I had a whole bunch of iris growing in the yard in my old house at one time. We had a small pond and they looked wonderful growing on the side of it. I wound up digging them up and gave them to my Dad after we decided to fill the pond in. Happily, I did see the leaves of an iris here when we moved in near our driveway. I'm looking forward to seeing what that looks like!

They're gorgeous. I need some fresh flowers in my house, brighten things up a bit.
You know that beautiful color combination reminds me that nobody does it better than nature.

OMGosh. These are so beautiful. Just had an idea. How pretty would an Easter table be with a different spring flower embroidered on each place setting napkin? You must do a "collection". :)
